Eddie Redmayne And James Corden Show Why ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Wouldn’t Work In The Modern World

Entertainment Writer

There’s no way to really get around it, Fantastic Beasts has hit theaters and J.K. Rowling’s world of wizards is back in the spotlight. The Harry Potter universe is a bit out of my wheelhouse, but I will admit that wizards and magical monsters in a suitcase that cause havoc in 1920s New York is more interesting than a kid that grows up and learns magic over the course of 18 movies or books. The numbers are fudged, but you get the point.

But with it taking place in the early 20th century, Fantastic Beasts doesn’t have to deal with issues involving travel that many face in the modern world. Namely the TSA and their draconian practices towards liquids and your belt. That’s where this sketch from The Late Late Show comes in, showing how Eddie Redmayne’s Newt Scamander would have a heck of a time making it through airport security with his case full of beasts. Not only that, but Scamander is a poor traveler and doesn’t know how to pack his luggage in order to move quickly through security.
